Stacking the Shelves (7): Back to School Edition

Hosted by Tynga
It's the Back to School Edition of Stacking the Shelves! I say this because these arrived in the mail this week: 

My textbooks for the first half of my last year of University! I won't bore you anymore with the details. 

These awesome books came from Atria Books week for review:
  • Advent by James Treadwell
  • Between You and Me by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

I spent the better part of the past week and a half trying to find Girl of Nightmares to no avail. It wasn't until a super helpful Indigo employee who looked in the stock in the back and found one yesterday, that I finally got my copy! But in my search through several different bookstores, I ended up coming across a lot of books on sale like the Halo, and Leviathan series. 

  • Halo (Halo, #1) by Alexandra Adornetto
  • Hades (Halo, #2) by Alexandra Adornetto
  • Leviathan (Leviathan, #1) by Scott Westerfield
  • Behemoth (Leviathan, #2) by Scott Westerfield
  • Girl of Nightmares (Anna, #2) by Kendare Blake <- I've started this one and it's so awesome so far!
  • For Darkness Shows the Stars by Dana Peterfreund
  • Onyx (Lux, #2) by Jennifer Armentrout (eBook) <- I've finished this one already and it was amazing!!! Review to come. 

One last thing, you know what day it is?! It's The Hunger Games DVD release day!!! 
This is what I plan to spend my day doing today! Special features and all!

So what's new on your shelves this week? Leave me a link and I'll be sure to stop by!
